Broken Moral Contract
Peter Tinley, lead tactical planner for Australia’s SAS special forces in the US has spoken out against the Howard governments intentions in helping to invade and occupy Iraq. He made a stunning admission:
“When I pressed them (US intelligence) for more specific imagery or information regarding locations or likely locations of WMD they confessed, off the record, that there had not been any tangible sighting of any WMD or WMD enabling equipment for some years,”
As news.com.au reports (a Murdoch company, no less!):
He said the Government had broken a moral contract with its defence force in sending it to an “immoral war”.
